July 4th: Individual Freedom – Or Free Individual?

Dennis Hopper Questions Authority

Dennis Hopper Questions Authority

It’s been a tradition here at Dojo Rat to post this great scene from the movie “Easy Rider” every 4th of July. For those too young to remember the movie, I highly suggest you look it up and watch it. Lots of stereotypes are profiled, but the show does a great job of capturing the late 1960’s.
Shown in this scene are Jack Nicholson, Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper. Ironically, Hopper (in the fringe jacket) was not at all like his Hippie-Biker character in the movie. He was the son of a U.S. Intelligence officer and supporter of right-wing causes, bragging about his 30-year track record of voting Republican.
In this scene, Nicholson discusses the difference between individual freedom and a free individual. Sorry about the short commercial at the start of the clip, YouTube never used to have those.
Enjoy!

  • Review: Industrial Society And Its Future -A Manifesto By Ted Kaczynski
    Well, I finally did it. I got a copy of the short (123 page) “Manifesto” by Ted Kaczynski (The “Unibomber”) and gave it a quick read. “Industrial Society And Its Future” “Manifesto” by Kaczynski (who I will refer to as “T.K.”), was shocking and informative – to a point that I just won’t go. Just […]
  • Review: The Indigenous Paleolithic Of The Western Hemisphere
    Well, this book kicks off my reading of ancient/revision history. I gotta say, I learned quite a bit, but it wasn’t what I expected to learn. First of all, let me say this book, published by The University of Nebraska Press, was very expensive as books go. I think I paid around $60.00 for it. […]
  • Covid Dreams
    Covid Dreams This rambling post is simply the wanderings of my mind as I have worked through Covid. If you don’t care to read it, fine. I’m just working through some thoughts, and believe me, I’ve had a full week of isolation to think about shit. First, let me say I have (until last week) […]
  • Ray Crowe: Bigfoot Behavior
    While taking another break from reading dystopian books on the state-of-the-world, I picked up my copy of “Bigfoot Behavior”, by Ray Crowe. Let me begin by saying that I met Mr. Crowe and spoke with him many times. I bought armloads of books at his tiny used book store in the St. John’s neighborhood on […]
  • Larceny Games; Sports Gambling, Game Fixing And The FBI
    Let me start by saying that I played a lot of sports in High School, some I liked, some I didn’t. When the coaches kept chasing me down I agreed to try Football, even though I didn’t give a shit about Football. One of my good friends was a star on the team. He decided […]
